CBS Watch! went all out for its Special Comedy Issue, which just hit newsstands. The magazine features five collector’s covers, each with a different comic actor: Jim Parsons of The Big Bang Theory, Melissa McCarthy of Mike & Molly, Kat Dennings of 2 Broke Girls, Jason Segel of How I Met Your Mother, and Angus T.
